Warm wind. Gentle as a soft caress. Tractors moving back and forth to roll the soil. A salute to the gift of liberty that is this work. The engaged relationship between sun, soil, air, water, all that grows and life. Living it out in such close proximity to the waking and working in the field. Farming, the warm wind; it is all gentle as a soft caress.

When the question is posed and answered we know where we are beginning. When the question is answered in a form that is ... la, la, la, la, but... we know that we are not answering the question.
Laughing at how long it takes to relax. The idea of just sitting down and being in a complete state of relaxation ... without being asleep. Once the idea took root, actually was allowed to begin to grow, it took three quarters of a football game to reach the moment.
And then couldn't keep my eyes open. Hmmm, I am sure there is a balance to be found here. And for the moment, it is the humor of the balance that is worth the time it took to observe the process....
Good thing there is another game down the road to practice again.
